I'd be a little weary about and updated Changeling. The original is great. I'd have to think about that one.


I think it really all depends on the director.

They are remaking HELLRAISER...I think its due out next year. There are some movie that should never be remade, I'm sorry. They are remaking ENTER THE DRAGON. Anybody with a brain knows that Bruce Lee is the only person to do that movie. You can not remake a movie that defined the sandard for martial arts movies. That is the movie that showed the word who Bruce Lee was. Thats like remaking GONE WITH THE WIND...do think they will do that...I doubt it.

A remake of Enter the Dragon? Now some things just shouldn't be touched. Just my opinion. Have to wonder if anyone can come up with anything knew. It seems lately that anyone can remake something or bite off something someone else has done. It seems the hard part is being original. Let me have a stab (no pun intended) at Hollywood and the movies. ;)

All,
I am writing in the process of writing a screenplay for the remake of " THE SCREAMING SKULL"!!! It's my all time favorite horror film!!!

Anthony

I love that movie!!! I think A re-make would rock.
I'm not so hot on re-makeing newer movies, like Hellraiser and Nightmare (Sorry to me they are still "newer" because I like to watch OLD horror movies. From the 50's,60's and 70's)
But there is one old movie from the 70's Isaw that I think was one of the most awful I have ever seen. It was called "The Hearse". It was badly done BUT I thought the story line was pretty good and I would love to see someone re-do that one. There a lot of older movies out there that were so poorly made they were a joke but, they still have good concepts and good story lines. Why can't they re-make some of those? Then maybe the re-make would be worth something and not someone's ego boost . (Ahem. The Halloween revision is not included in that. Rob Zombie did it because he LOVES that movie)

Also re-makeing Enter the Dragon has got to be some kind of movie sacrilige!!!

I'd like to see a really great remake of The Shining!!! That would be awesome!



I must say that TNT's remakes of Stephen King's movies have been pretty good. The Shining in particular, follows the book a little closer. I think it was Steven Weber from Wings who played Jack. I also liked their remake of Salems Lot. Still just as freaky as the original.

I'd like to see a remake of The Howling, as long as it was done well. I'd also like a remake of Stephen King's IT- it was the first tv adaptation they did of one of King's books and while I enjoyed it I wish that some scenes from the book had been included, maybe instead of two nights like they did it should have been three or four.

Ahh but I heard from Pinhead himself that he will most likely not being playing that role. Doug Bradley was at Univ-con and of course we couldn't not ask him about the remake. First he said don't listen to IMDB. IMDB says they are in talks. He said if they are in talks they are so quiet he can't hear them. Second of all can anyone replace Doug Bradley as Pinhead? Those are some awful big pins to fill.

In my opinion (oh geez, here it comes!), some horror movies should never be considered for remakes. A lot of the older movies, and some newer ones, like "The Sixth Sense" tell a suspenseful and sometimes spooky story without having to sink to making a movie that's 3/4 gore, 1/8 story and 1/8 acting. Even "Blair Witch" became a classic, because it was suspenseful (they could have really cut out a huge chunk of the middle, and still have a good film). The only thing accomplished by rewriting or remaking a horror film with a lot of blood and gore is desensitizing people.

No I agree. I think they aren't even calling them remakes anymore. I can't remember the word they are using. I do think that some could be remade and it would actualy make them better but some need to be left alone for sure.

I'd love to see remakes of Clash of the Titans or The Odyssey. Should they ever make them, you'll see me dance.

I think if it's a HORROR movie then Rob Zombie is the director du jour. I love him and I love his music.

I love the old Vincent Price films. When I was a kid we watched them every Sunday. Buckets of Blood was my fav. Plus all the old Lon Cheney & Boris Karloff films. I have them all on DVD and I love them. Those shouldn't be redone - they're classics but they could be updated under a different title. I loved the Hellraiser movies. I sincerely dislike the Nightmare on Elm Street movies but I'm not a "gore" person. I prefer implied horror like The Changling.

Exorcist would be great redone by the likes of Rob Zombie. I do realize that saying I don't like gore and then saying I like Rob Zombie as a director is a contradiction but he's graphically realistic which I don't mind as much as just blood & guts everywhere.
